Mechanical neck pain

Your neck supports the weight and movement of your head – quite a job, since an adults head can weigh between 3-5 – 5.5kg!  Loss of proper joint movement/mechanics may cause local pain, muscle spasm and irritation of the joints or nerves that come out of your spine.  This, in turn, can lead to referred  pain.

This is why your neck may be treated when you have consulted your chiropractor about shoulder and elbow problems, cervigogenic headache and migraine prevention.
